The issue is until officials start firing these people or large lawsuits are won things won’t change. In this world you have to send a strong message. If you are working with the public there has to be zero tolerance when it comes to language, racism, sexual intolerance. It just isn’t civilized.
Can Quebec continue to allow these incidents to occur without ramifications to the employees that commit offenses as with the allegations today or with the Paramedic that refused to speak with the parents of a child they were tending in English?
And where is the Federal government in this mess? Why are not they making statements and putting some heat on the Quebec Government and Montreal agencies like the STM.
Does someone have to get hurt or die before something finally happens?
How can we talk about anti-bullying to children when adults behave in these manners?
The woman, Mina Barak, 23, alleges the argument escalated to a physical struggle after the employee refused to assist her in English.
Barak wants the worker, whom she says assaulted her and ordered her to ‘go back to your country,’ charged.
In this instance the STM worker not only allegedly physically assaulted Ms Barak, but uttered a racially intolerant term to her. When is enough a enough? Hopefully CCTV cameras will show what exactly happened, but if these allegations are true this worker has to be fired.
It’s not about French & English. It’s about what we truly will accept in our society. It’s time to show people that this type of behavior is not acceptable.
